Update [8/31/2010]: As of September 1, 2010 we no longer offer one-on-one appointments with a librarian.Get one-on-one assistance from a librarian on reference projects, Internet use or other library services. Make an appointment and our librarians can help you post a resume to a job hunt site, learn to navigate the web and set up email, obtain in-depth reference assistance, research a health topic, learn to use a database, and more. It’s your own private consultation with a reference librarian. Ask at the Reference Desk to set up your appointment.
